choose a democrat, if the election were held today. greta asked former house speaker newt gingrich why, without knowing who the candidate would be, voters right now favor his party? >> greta: mr. speaker nice to see you. >> good to see you. >> greta: we are hearing a lot about these polls liking grim her for the democrats, which i'm sure doesn't disappoint you. what is going on with this enthusiasm gap between democrats and republicans? >> part of it is the job-killing nature of the way the democrats have handled the economy. the fact that the unemployment numbers have been so consistently bad. part of it is that the radicalism of the obama team and pelosi and reid, has in a strange way depressed their side and truly aroused both independents and republicans in a way this you couldn't have predicted -- when obama came in, nobody would have predicted they would be in the mood they are in after -- coming up on labor day, this weekend. i think that -- >> greta: where did it go? all the crowds and enthusiasm, even their own base doesn't seem seem to be excited. where is the democratic enth
of newt gingrich making that charge? >> you know, i mean, i was never a big fan of newt gingrich when he was in office. i have no idea why the media is still knocking on his door now that he is not in office. i think he is perhaps the most used guest on the sunday talk shows. what's sad is that newt used to be the thinker in that party. he was like the trotsky. this is the thinker? this is the reader? well, you know, in the land of midgets, pigmies cast tall shadows. >> he thinks the president is thinking like a kenya. here's bill clinton this morning on "good morning america." here he is, president bill clinton. let's listen. >> the american people can elect whomever they want, but she served not a full time term as governor. we don't know if she's going to run for president. >> what's your gut on that? >> but i think, i think she's clearly a public figure who is -- who speaks well and persuasively to the people who listen to her and she's somebody to be reckoned with. >> there's the president on george stephanopoulos this morning. he's a good judge of horse flesh, as we say. he's not u

against a democratic white house. they played the game of chicken, newt gingrich vs. blil, they shut down the government over the republican demand of medicare cuts -- >> they shut down the smithsonian for a few days, turned the lights out in the capitol. the average person watching, we can save a few bucks. so what? a lot of independent voters say so what. >> what happened in '95 and will happen again they don't say so what. people are unnerved by what they perceive as radical. newt gingrich sold the conservative revolutionaries out, cut a deal with bill clinton, brought the conservatives along and reopened the government. they lost. i think what you're seeing in the interview is how different the climate is for republicans now. they -- the tea party movement to me is the conservative republican base calling the bluff of the republicans in washington who for years have talked about lowering the size of government, tax cut cutting taxes but haven't delivered. they cut the deal that gingrich cut in the end. they've concern that for the last 30 years. the fox news crowd, tea party crowd, wa
, and today newt gingrich joined the team, republicans exploiting our fears again. that's our top story tonight. plus, if you watched "hardball" last night, you know the whole affair involving the florida pastor who is or isn't going to burn korans tomorrow has become a never ending saga. this afternoon pastor terry jones insisted, he's convinced, why, we don't know, that he's going to meet tomorrow with the new york imam in charge of the planned islamic center near ground zero and work out a deal. that's what he says. that's what he hopes. we'll have the latest in a moment. >>> also another battle opened in the war against don't ask, don't tell. a federal judge says it violates the constitutional rights of gays and she'll issue an order to halt the policy. what happens now? how did we get from 9/11 being a politics free zone to becoming a talking point for republicans to exploit? the truth is over. conservatives are winning it. let me end with my own thoughts on how obama plans to diffuse the plan and how his opponents refused to join in common cause even on this. let's start with repu
